Driver Feedback Display ViaSite Smiley

Images work better than numbers

Images are more effective than numbers in reducing speeding. Often drivers are not aware of speed limits in the region, even if it might be a familiar area. Numeric information is not relevant enough and many displays do not indicate clearly enough when the speed limit is exceeded. Field testing shows clearly that an image catches the driver’s attention better than a conventional number display. Interestingly, many drivers maintained their speed while passing the numeric speed display, but slowed down while approaching a “Smiley Face” display

Instant Feedback function

Instant feedback is the major contributor for this. The speed is verified and compared to the speed limit 8 times in a second. This allows the display to react to any speed changes while the driver is still approaching the display. The display turns bright red and shows a sad face if the limit is exceeded. If the driver reduces the speed under the limit while still approaching the display, it will immediately show a green smiley face and this way awards the driver for reducing the speed. This type of an approach encourages correct traffic behavior more effectively than a conventional speed display. The display is designed in a triangle shape which is associated with warning signs – this enhances visibility and noticeability.

Versatile programming functions

The speed limit and minimum & maximum speeds are set by using a control panel equipped by a backlit LCD screen and five control buttons. The screen and the buttons are located behind a separate hatch with a lock. USB and serial connections for data transfer are also located behind the same hatch. With maximum speed setting it is possible to filter out extreme speed limit violations. With minimum speed setting it is possible to filter out pedestrians and cyclists.

The integrated speed data collection module gathers speed, date and time information from up to 100 000 samples. The module gathers information not only from approaching targets, but resending targets as well. This information can be easily transferred over serial / USB connection directly from the display. Optional GSM/GPS –data transfer allows wireless data transfer from the display as well. The control module software is upgradable for new and improved functions. A simple software upgrade enables a long life time for this product.
